The limousine socialist elite regularly give each other a round of applause during their virtue signaling pageants, whether it is at an award ceremony or during a choreographed media event. Espousing the correct social justice buzzwords and propounding the same asinine leftist talking points that do not violate any of the guidelines on the 3×5 card of allowable opinion, the supercilious privileged believe they are the Übermensch who know what is best for society. Because they were born into the right family, starred in a summer blockbuster, or gained the right contacts in government, they possess omnipotent knowledge that John Q. Public lacks. Therefore, the peasants should do what the globalists say, abandon independent thought, and adopt the inner workings of groupthink.
Let Them Eat Cake
Recently, The Economist tweeted a May 2019 story about the rise of meat consumption around the world, including in impoverished nations. The report cited Africans, who are getting richer, eating more meat, leading healthier lives, and living longer. The magazine’s social media team tweeted: “More poor people are eating meat around the world. That means they will live longer, healthier lives, but it is bad news for the environment.” A day later, Newsweek tweeted out a story about cannibalism, writing: “Cannibalism is found throughout the animal kingdom—so why is it the ultimate taboo for humans?”
Conservatives had a good chuckle when it was recently revealed that former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, had purchased a $15 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard. So much for global warming causing sea levels to soar.
These stories come as Liberty Nation’s Onar Åm reported on United Nations scientists recommending a change in diet that would bug anyone who had a sensible palate. He wrote:
“This is not the first time the UN has proposed changes to our food to save the planet. In 2018, a team of scientists suggested replacing meat with insects. Beef is at the top of the food chain and therefore, highly energy-intensive. By comparison, insects are incredibly efficient and can produce a protein-rich diet with much fewer resources.”
Åm added this goodie: “It should come as no surprise that people are not standing in line to add bugs to their meals voluntarily.” And he summarizes the real story into a neat little package.
Do As I Say
The world is lectured every day by self-important, egocentric, wealthy, jet-flying, meat-eating, and energy-consuming celebrities, politicians, and bureaucrats who insist that they – and only they – can save the planet from you.
That’s right, you! Don’t you know? You’re a serf who is expendable and should live the way Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Gore, former President Obama, and affluent cronyists want you to. And, if you don’t, then you are a climate change denier, as well as a little racist and a good old-fashioned transphobic thrown into the mix because … well, why not?
Of course, it should come as no surprise that the globalists refuse to lead by example. Instead, they want to use the weapon of the state to mandate and tax everyone, socially-engineering the world based on what they deem acceptable.
Contrary to what the Counterfeit News Network and Fredo Cuomo will tell you, it isn’t about saving the planet. It is about these self-interested globalists driving Teslas, having the proletariat install solar panels on their rooftops, and enjoying their green tea Frappuccino with a strawberry smoothie base, two pumps of caramel, three espresso shots, and topped with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle in their villas in Lake Como.
Meanwhile, you are left to eat cockroaches and crickets and then flush them down with tainted municipal tap water using a paper straw.
But they don’t want you, the American people, to suffer alone. They also want to suppress growth in historically impecunious societies. Rather than celebrate African and Asian countries becoming wealthier places (thanks to capitalism), rich and conceited progressive Westerners want to prevent them from enjoying everything the West has to offer, from air conditioning to chicken cordon bleu. All in the name of Mother Nature, who probably finds it as annoying as the Lord’s name being said in vain.
A Smiling Villain
These people can get away with their hypocrisy because they dominate the pillars of society, from the entertainment industry to the mainstream press to the academic community.
What does Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) care if in the past he said, “You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country”? He can go home to one of his three houses, look at his ballooning bank account, and enjoy being beloved by millions for offering free stuff, all while being considered a paragon of virtue. Why should celebrities lose sleep at night when they tell the world that sea levels are rising at unprecedented levels but live on the coast in opulent palaces?
They expect you to do without while they get to live on yachts, drinking champagne and eating caviar.
Our supposed betters are permitted to be hypocrites because they spout asinine leftist, feel-good talking points. They donate to the right causes and shed tears at the appropriate times. Eventually, they cower in fear when there is an opportunity that their egalitarian, wealth redistributive visions are realized. Their façade might manipulate large swathes of the public, but there will always be artwork hiding in the closet that paints an authentic picture of who they are. One may smile, and smile, and still be a villain; a mantra of Hollywood, and Washington.
